It is rare to find practitioners that are truly trained in mind, body, spirit, but this group is your chance to experience that from a professional. Our groups combine psychology, yoga, and meditation in didactic and experiential environment. You will be taught the essentials of how these modalities intersect in a way to work with your deeper feelings and to learn to care for and release them. This is a time to connect with others who are striving, learn to feel more deeply, and to create a practice of self care that goes beyond the surface level. We can really know what we want until we work to become more conscious of the body and psyche and what is being stored there. The techniques teach you to be aware of what you are feeling in the moment, which allows for a deepening of the way you relate to your thoughts and patterns. Unwanted patterns of relating and behaving discovered during the sessions can then be shifted as you want. This is not psychotherapy or group therapy, simply some courses to help you on your way, though we do recommend that you have a psychotherapist to support you in this process of self discovery.
